Hoses of the Holy in the Parallel Universe

Rhythm and Blues

Saturnalia will soon be here, and with a mere two days to the Solstice, getting any sunlight on the back of the head is a task indeed. For this reason, I am grateful that a Sunday roast dinner always prompts the kids to ask, "Can we go to the park?"

We always seem to arrive when most people are eating dinner (we eat early and often in our house), so it's always quiet, though it seems extraordinary that at around 2 in the afternoon the sun is too low in the sky to be seen through the trees.

We have a good time, though, and although they can swing themselves using the pendulum method, they love to be pushed. I got a great rhythm going, standing behind and between the swings, pushing one with left hand and then the other with right, to squeals of delight.

Then we played on the slide and I taught Didi the art of going down face first... remembering too late that she still has all her own teeth.
